The Washington State Nurses Association represents registered nurses at the UW Medical Center. Founded in 1908, WSNA helped develop the profession of nursing in Washington State and continues to serve RNs at hospitals throughout the state.

WSNA functions as a union, bargaining with employers over employment issues, but it also has other functions, including providing continuing nursing education programs. WSNA maintains a website that is more comprehensive than any of the other UW unions. Click the logo below:
